Epic for me
I flew up from Houston for Red Rocks and Telluride. My buddy flew in a day later. The drive to Telluride was long in the rental that I had plastered with homemade stickers. The ticket release on the way was way cool. The two days were fantastic, from the opening notes to the fun at the Carry Me To The Moon Saloon. Long story short...........my 15 seconds of fame.......during Samson on Sunday I was rockin like never before and it was very clear from my position left center stage 15 feet back, Jerry was checking me out because I was moving so much, good times to say the least.

This was also the first day of the Harmonic Convergence. The whole run from Red Rocks to the Mountain Aire Music Festival saw lots of people buzzing about celestial education, time and quartz. We left the area pretty late, passed through Stoner around 3 and pulled into the visitors parking lot at Canyon de Chelly in Az a little before sunrise. A local man came up, looked us over and said "Get me high or get the fuck away from my canyon." We smoked, ate strawberry ice cream and told him we were heading to Sedona for the gathering there. He laughed, mumbled something about "suggestable hippies" and tols us that if we really wanted to help the planet we should head down to Window Rock and join the protest against a proposed strip-mining expansion. Which we did...

axis between earth and sky
That's essentially what it was like being at these shows in this place.
Spotty music night 2, but it was too late at that point for any downer. The whole thing was a peak experience. As were the dead and all you heads, over the years.
Remember how BG and all created the subversion after Red Rocks? It worked, amazingly. What a stunning place, with the Dead in front of you, and 3 fourteeners behind you. I think everyone went for it the first night, it was too much.
Olatunji at sunrise.
I'm rating it high, because it was an epic and magic time. Well done all.
This kind of stuff, can you get it anymore????

This was the Telluride show!
This wasn't Ventura. I remember Telluride well enough. Overall the best place for a show on earth... Well except for Egypt maybe.
We had so much fun these nights it's hard to believe that it's been 21 years ago. The alltitide messed with the band and the wind messed with the sound but it didn;t matter. It still sounded pretty damn good... We were hoping for a 2nd set Shakedown but they opened with Push... Oh my Lordy! Well you get what you get!
The Brokedown was hillarious to begin with but finished strong! Most fun ever!

That is the wrong show
I was there. The show you have is from two days earlier at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. I was at the Ventura shows and the Telluride show. I don't remember all of it but I do remember the Mississipi 1/2 step and the Masterpeice was the first time they played it. They played Shakedown and Minglewood at Telluride.

Just chiming in
First - lemme say that last guy was a prick - don't pick on jboy.... He's just a head like the rest of us.
A friend who was at the show directed me here. It was a pretty typical show in that the band had their ups and downs. Its what adds character to the Dead. I have to say - in copmparrison to many shows I have been to - this one had a certain playful nature. I would have loved to have been there.
I strongly advise downloading this show - if for no other reason, its a great recording and the boys were really enjoying their time in Telluride. Besides the hilarious Brokedown thing - they were really quite ON this night too.
Take care all - and as always rock out w/ your c*ck out...

An oddly off and on show.
1st Set: Mississippi" is a good call considering the pastoral surroundings. (Speaking of those surroundings, I'm in a spacious but sufferingly proper office hellhole.) Not super-duper powerful, but pleasant enough. Where are the hounds on "Rooster?" Kinda too slow for my mood. Thank God Brent instills some life. Because it inspires this colossal sound 6:30-7:15. "Iko" is a needed pick-me up...but contains generic soloing. Some time to reflect on the day...and "Beer Barrel Polka Tuning" :o)A real knee-slapper of a bit. "Far From Me" should have been crossed off in favor of a "Lazy Lighnin/Supp" Next on the 'to do' list is a trip to "West LA." Fine slang-y (mid- 5's), but kinda blah personality. "Big" is a necessary call to up-tempo tightnness. Let's continue the easy foot-skiffing on a rollin "Promised."
2nd Set: Oh Lordie..., you've got to be kidding us all with this "Push" crap... "Samson" burns some thin tire rubberings. "He's Gone" remains strictly standard til the mildly interesting vocal outro jam that leads to a musical breakdown into "Drums." The energy is not at a sufficient enough level to garner more than passing interest. However, the lengthy (for '87) "OO" that emerges from "Space" is consistently engaging. It's a "fuckin' shame" that all sequences aren't this enjoyable as "Truckin'" keeps the tone akin to 'good times, great memories.' Oh, and how they should have gone into 'Smokestack...' instead it's the rightful blues of "Black Peter." It continues the trend of the 2nd part of the 2nd set...not mountainous peaks, bit never a lull... "Good Lovin" is fine, but nothing blockbuster-y.
Yay, let's conclude with "Touch," as all hopes for significance, really after "Truckin" have subsided. That's not to say that the end of this show hasn;t been pleasant, or strong...
Awww..another double encore... "Brokedown" lacks any set-up intro, in fact it lacks anything cept for Jerry... So, he's singing, while the others are giving like 1/5th their norm effort..."Wait a minute, this is all fucked Up...Oxygen Deprivation....WE're in the wrong Key...people, we're not used to this, the altitude and all..."
the resulting attempt is far more affecting and successful.
3 star event.

My first show!
My first ever Dead show, and I had no idea what was in store. I was on vacation with my parents...I'd never even *heard* of the Dead. Turned me on in a huge way! I could have asked for a more perfect first show.

JG: Were in the wrong key....
Thats funny Jerry says- "altitude in all" and laughs. It was always rare but fun when Garcia talked with the crowd. Must of been beautiful up there in Telluride with the Dead. Would of been a perfect weekend get-away vaction to CO.

the entire weekend at telluride was an absolute kick in the pants!! in my humble 100 shows or so, i never had more fun!! although the performances weren't exactly spectacular, they were wonderful. the whole vibe was off the hook and it comes across in the recordings. everyone was just hangin' out, including the band. and of course, the brokedown brokedown is priceless!! funny thing, i saw more than 1 person that weekend literally unable to give tickets away!! download this show!!

Very fun, The air Quality got to Jerry < He starts brokedown with the wrong words, stops the band then makes it up with a kicken brokedown. Great sound as well......
